I added a GopherHaul video on this topic of lawn care business press releases.

I thought this was interesting. A press release by TruGreen became an article.

TruGreen bringing more than 100 jobs to Dallas area (http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/bus/industries/commrealestate/stories/021909dnbustrugreen.2ad85ebb.html) - Lawn care and landscape company TruGreen said Wednesday that it is opening a new customer service center in the Dallas area that will create more than 100 jobs.

The new operation is located in an 18,000-square-foot building on Lakepointe Drive in Lewisville. It's next to a facility operated by TruGreen’s sister company, Terminix.

So remember, give the media something to talk about. Send out your press releases and get an article printed about you.

Have you ever thought about offering a class on gardening or lawn care? If you don't have commercial office space you could even hold something like this at your local library.

Here in this community news section a local garden center gets free publicity to promote their lawn care class.

GARDENING (http://www.courier-gazette.com/articles/2009/02/24/mckinney_courier-gazette/news/9217.txt) - Calloway’s Nursery on Eldorado is offering a series of gardening programs this spring. On Saturday, Feb. 28, the program will cover "Lawn Care" at 10:15 a.m.

Calloway's gardeners say that a lush, green lawn doesn't just happen. Get to the root of lawn care with this Clinic. Learn when and how to fertilize, how to rid your lawn of weeds, how to get the brown out and more.

The next two Calloway’s seminars will be a March 7 discussion of “Spring Vegetables and Herbs" and a March 14 "Simply Beautiful" look at adding color to the garden.

There is no reason why you couldn't do this too. Video tape your event and then add it to your website!
